The PACS Thrift Stores are located on our campus at 11020 NE Halsey St and sell clothing, furniture, and household items to help families make their money go further. Our commitment to you is that we sell quality items, at low cost, provide an organized shopping experience, and provide high-quality customer service.
The store is open to everyone. There is no qualification process or low-income requirement. All are welcome here!
The average price that an item sold for in 2017 was just $1.22 with many items priced as low as $0.25. Items are priced with colored tags. Items for sale start at full price (white tag). If the items don’t sell, twice a month the items are discounted — first, 25% off (yellow tag), then 50% off (green tag), and finally, 75% off (orange tag). Sometimes items end up as low as $0.25. Items are discounted on the 1st and 16th of each month, or if we are closed on the normal color-change date, it moves to the next following business day. On the last business day before a color change day, there is a ten cent day where items of the lowest-priced color are marked down to $0.10 for one-day as an extra bargain.
In our clothing thrift store, we offer a range of sizes and styles for men, women, and children along with accessories like luggage, handbags, and jewelry. You will find fabric, sewing patterns, a section of home medical equipment, and a small used bookstore with sheet music.
In our household store, you will find a wide range of cooking items, dishes, silverware and household and office accessories like lamps, office supplies, and decorator items. We also have toys and sports equipment. Our furniture section is constantly changing with tables, chairs, desks, couches, end tables, and clean, used mattresses. If you are looking for specific furniture we suggest you call ahead to ask about our inventory.
